Add the EdgeWorkers behavior

Use Property Manager to turn on the behavior in your Akamai property configuration.

Before you begin

Create an EdgeWorker ID so it appears in the list within Property Manager.
In order to use the EdgeWorkers function, you need to turn it on in your property configuration.

How to

  1. Navigate to your property in Control Center.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Click Add rule.
  4. Enter a name.
  5. Choose a match criteria and scope.
    Note: Scope defines which requests should have EdgeWorkers functions applied. By limiting the scope you can avoid unnecessary serverless hits, which can improve performance and reduce cost.
  6. Search for EdgeWorkers in available behaviors.
  7. Change the setting to On.
  8. Click Insert Behavior.
  9. Select an EdgeWorker identifier from the list.
    If you haven't created an EdgeWorker identifier, click the link in the information dialog. The EdgeWorkers Management application will open in a new window.

    Once you have created your EdgeWorker identifier, close the window and reload the Property Manager Editor page. Now you can select the new EdgeWorker identifier from the list.
  10. Save your property.
  11. Click the Activate tab.
  12. Click the Activate v<#> on Staging or Activate v<#> on Production button.

Next steps

Once you've added the EdgeWorkers behavior in Property Manager follow the steps in Manage EdgeWorkers with the EdgeWorkers Management application or Manage EdgeWorkers with the API. This section also includes details about how to Activate an EdgeWorker version on the staging or production network.
